Capital for coops: not a chocolate biscuit

Journalistic integrity demands that I admit to a mistake.  I was wrong when, in my last blog,  I described the new initiative on capital for cooperatives from the  International Co-operative Alliance as their Blue Riband Commission.  Chuck Gould their director-general has put me right.  The ICA have named it their Blue Ribbon Commission.

And when I admitted to Chuck that I wasn’t really any the wiser, he told me that this has traditionally been a US term for a high-level enquiry led by experts.

So I hope that helps put things right. The substantive point remains that this is potentially a very valuable initiative.  See below!
